    Pros

    The culture of "awesome" is really lived at REW. Awesome people, success and results through our goals, GREAT team events and in short... REW is a lifestyle that just includes good work, career growth and development throughout, and a vision to continue to lead as a top company in International Real Estate technology development.

    Cons

    No cons at all.

    Advice to Management

    I love how our CEO gets to truly know everyone's strengths and weaknesses and helps them develop their skills to help them become the best they can be- and be happy and satisfied with life at REW.

    There is Nothing good about this company

    Pros

    Great people who are very supportive! This is a fast pace environment where everyone works hard including the CEO and upper management. If you have a good attitude and strong work ethic, you can shape and create your own opportunities within the company. Nice office, fun social events and people have a good sense of humor.

    Cons

    The company is continuing to gain traction on processes and procedures which will help all team members. In the meantime it can be a little confusing on how to approach certain tasks. This is common for most companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep driving the processes and procedures and also look into more formal training for team members.

    Pros

    Its great working with such talented and driven people, they set the bar high , but I thrive in that kind of environment. My colleagues are all super supportive and I feel that everybody has the best on intentions in driving the business forward.

    Cons

    Like any rapidly expanding business you need to be comfortable in a dynamic environment and acknowledge that sometimes things can take a different turn at short notice

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up - things are changing and for the better from what I can see.

    Pros

    There is always an immense drive and support to succeed. When it came down to it and when we strip away everyone's ego, decisions are always made to make the company better. This is not always the popular option, the fun option or (rarely) the easy option, but it was always chosen to ensure that the company won out. This, in my opinion, is a tremendous Pro when selecting a company to work for. There are companies...

    Cons

    Trust is not easy to come by and "ownership" of projects are even harder. Unlike some companies where you are hired and them provided free reign, at REW you have to earn trust through performing your duties first before they relenquish control of processes. This may be difficult for some personalities who want to come in an "change it all".

    Advice to Management

    Relinquishing control and judging on performance KPIs rather than tactics needs to be in place. Otherwise people are judge not on what they bring to the table but simply how they comply with the rules.

    Pros

    1. You are part of a real life dystopian experience. Who will still be employed at the end of 2019? Only time will tell. 2. Your paycheques will not bounce 3. Benefits are decent 4. You will get some work experience for your resume 5. You’ll likely learn some new skills on the job, which will allow you to get a better job 6. When you get a new job you’ll appreciate it much more as you’ll have come from an insanely...

    1. No professional development opportunities. The CEO will tell you “we are not a university” 2. You will have to maintain your persona as a “yes man” to keep in the company’s good graces 3. Your mental health will decline. You will be experiencing a toxic environment day in and day out. People spend all their free time here obsessing over their days, and speculating what will happen tomorrow 4. There’s no job security....

    Advice to Management

    Always be awesome! Just kidding. The culture at REW suffers from a systematic problem that starts with the CEO that will never be solved. There’s really no advice that can be given to management because they’re not listening. Any managers who are great leaders eventually are let go, or quit. One piece of advice I have is to stop worrying about Glassdoor reviews and asking employees to leave fake 5 star reviews, and actually...

      Pros

      To the CEO, Morgan: Though you are woefully unenlightened, thankfully it serves as a good reminder to even minimally self-aware people of how not to behave. Eventually, conscious employees wake up, take back their power and choose to leave like a battered spouse who took one too many punches. Or, they get let go, which is devastating and humiliating but ultimately a good thing for them as it was the push they needed...

      Cons

      This is the oldest story in the book—a timeless tale of the oppressed uprising and the oppressor falling. It’s what happens when systems run without a clear ethical and moral guideline, without a well-defined set of values held tightly by the leader who practices extreme ownership over everything they do, rather than the denial, blaming and scapegoating that are your go-to ways of dealing with threats to your ego. ...

      Advice to Management

      To whatever aforementioned fixer replies to my review, it’s not too late for you. You know with your soul your level of complicity. Every time you write a contrived response to one these posts, it’s another strike against your self-esteem, another lie you’ve told yourself. And another indictment on Morgan’s pathological wrongdoing.

      Great co-workers, good clients, decent perks & reasonable pay. Generous in the community. Good work life balance. Lots of work to do.

      Cons

      Growing pains. Sometimes confused direction / communication.

      Advice to Management

      It’s headed in the right direction—need to spread the ownership and responsibilities around a bit more. The culture, community & charitible parts are really great. Would be nice to see even more with time.

      Pros

      1. You will get paid when they say you will. 2. You might be able to get a moderately impressive job title if you have an outgoing personality and will do whatever the CEO says. Singing karaoke is also a strangely important job skill. 3. You will meet many coworkers as they come and go.

      Cons

      1. If you recently watched Fyre on Netflix and were wondering what it would be like to work with Billy McFarland but can't because he's currently in prison, REW is a great second choice. There are an uncanny amount of parallels between the narcissistic CEO at REW and good ole Billy. 2. There is a yuge divide between people who hate working here and people who pretend they like it to keep their jobs. Exhibit A is the...

      I can't even. Your problems start with the CEO and will never be fixed because you can't teach a selfish old dog new tricks. There is one good upper manager but she's on a short leash and can't really fix anything.

        Some of the best co workers I've ever had still work there. So there's a shred of positivity and intelligence there.

        Cons

        REW is still the butt of every joke among current and past employees. Nothing's changed in the years since I've been gone. Well that's not entirely true. REWs (pronounced Roo) turnover rate is 3 fold since I've been around. The REW campus is like an actual college campus, you hate your teachers and you're broke because of what it costs to be there. The CEO is threatening sales staff with their own jobs and setting unrealistic...
